Formation, EPs and Tours

The band’s formation and road to stardom followed a typical path – they started out small and later made it big. The founding members of the band were Cedric Bixler and Jim Ward. They played their first live show a year after in front of a high school crowd at the Loretto High School in El Paso, Texas. In 1994, the band released their first EP called Hell Paso. To promote this album, the band soon embarked on a state wide tour and played at various venues. Encouraged by the initial response, At the Drive-In released their second EP ¡Alfaro Vive, Carajo! in 1995. As with the previous EP, the band embarked on a tour, however this was a US-wide tour, which lasted for 42 days. Though they mostly played at small venues and basements, the band slowly started to enjoy a large underground following, which helped them gain exposure.

The Big Show before a Small Crowd in Los Angeles

While touring, At the Drive-In performed before a crowd of 9 in a bar in Los Angeles. Out of these 9 people, some were employees of the Flipside records. The performance was a success and the Flipside records employees were so impressed that they offered At the Drive-In to release their next album. The band accepted the offer and as a result their debut studio album Acrobatic Tenement was released in 1996.

Acrobatic Tenement and Subsequent Music

Acrobatic Tenement had 11 tracks and all of them were inspired by the life and suicide of one of the band’s friends. Allmusic gave the album 4 stars. Encouraged by the reception of their debut studio album, At the Drive-In released their second studio album in 1998.

In/Casino/Out was recorded as a live album to capture the energy of At the Drive-In live shows. This album, too, had 11 tracks and once again Allmusic gave it 4 stars. In/Casino/Out peaked at the top of U.S. Billboard Vinyl Albums chart and years later in 2016, Rolling Stone ranked it at No.20 on its “40 Greatest Emo Albums of All Time” list.

Relationship of Command was the band’s third studio album, which was released in 2000. This was also their last album before the band broke up in 2001. This album would go down in history as one of the most influential post-hardcore albums of the decade. An 11-track album, Relationship of Command peaked at the top of Billboard Heat seekers chart. It also made an appearance on Australian and UK charts.

Breakup and Reunion

It is hard to say whether the band broke up or split into two in 2001. Some members of the band started their new group called The Mars Volta, while the rest formed Sparta. Sparta was a post-hardcore band like At the Drive-In live, while The Mars Volta followed a more progressive rock genre. However, they came all together once again in 2012 and played at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival as well as at the Lollapalooza Festival. This reunion would later result in the recording of their soon to be released fourth studio album, in•ter a•li•a.

Following in the footsteps of their previous albums, this album, too, would have 11 tracks and promises to be a huge success since the band members have said that they had a great time recording it. Tony Hajjar, the band’s drummer best sums it up: "It was the most fun I’ve had in years. It was so great to be around people I care for and care for me. We had some awesome, tough moments. But at the end, they were still great. When it was done we went into the studio control room, the last day of recording, we all just hugged each other. I’m so proud of my brothers, proud that we’ve done this, proud that we still get to do this at any level."
